The alarm was raised at around 8pm after the fire broke out in the buidling at Park Hall Farm, off Vellor Road, containing straw bales.

Three appliances were in attendance leaving and returning from the scene apparently ferrying water from the mains.

It is thought the fire may have been started deliberately.
